ROUND 2 WRAPTrade OUT:
B. Smith + Khan-PereiraTrade IN:
Thompson + CartwrightHOK: Hodgson
Same amount of tackles as last week but a lot more demerits and no attacking stats. At least he's getting 80 minutes. Not the biggest problem in my team, so he'll be moved on when I don't have other problems.MID: Murray (vc) | Haas | Hopgood
Down week for Murray with fewer minutes but that's fine. Haas solid, and Hopgood putting his hand up as the (c) option for next round.EDG: E. Katoa | Loiero
Really happy with these two. Katoa in particular looks more threatening, should have some big scores in him.HLF: Cleary (c) | Moses
Cleary incredibly underwhelming with a 37 in a Panthers win. At his price, with their bye next round, and his massive BE, I'm likely going to trade him out. He was never selected as a value buy, but as a safe (c) option. Now that Hopgood has overtaken him, and other options in my team like Murray and Haas as capable picks too, Cleary is surplus to requirements. His cash is better used on other value options, and can be traded back in after he drops a heap of cash and starts to show better form. Moses on the other hand with a huge round, happy with him.CTR: Thompson | Smith-Shields
Picked Thompson over the Hammer.... it is what it is. Hope he turns it around. HSS solid enough, needs to get some attacking stats soon.WFB: Tedesco | Nicoll-Klokstad | Warbrick
Teddy could've had a massive score, so need to be patient with him. CNK an unfortunate HIA, just hope he's named next round. Warbrick ticking along with no tries, so he's fine at his price.INT: E. Butcher | Boyd | Cartwright | Trindall
Butcher plodding along but he can stick around for now. Boyd had a shocker but just need to hope he keeps his spot, don't have enough trades to deal with him at the moment. Cartwright and Trindall excellent for their price and making nice cash gains.EMG: Doorey | Talau | Alamoti | I. Katoa
All fine here except for Talau - he is absolute mud. I don't want a spot in my 21 that isn't either scoring or generating cash so I'm likely moving him on.$233k ITB / 34 trades left (plus 8 from Round 20)Score:

got a start and played pretty much the full game. Cheap, low BE and showed he has a good fantasy game. If named to start, expecting everyone to bring him in if they don't already have him.
with some more tries and another good score. May mark him as a mistake, but I still think he'll have his low games to balance it out.
has started the season really well. Always have a soft spot for SJ and his base is improved from last season with goals and more kicking metres. Had a perfect game in Round 2. His price is very tempting but may need to give him one more week to see if he can back it up again.
had a great first up game. But a try, try save, try assist... and only 54 points doesn't scream must buy to me. Definitely one to consider but likely to give him another week.
is an absolute weapon. Who knows if he keeps playing 80 but his stats are immense and still under-priced.
seems to own the Bulldogs side and probably expecting a 50ish average sprinkled with some attacking stats. More affordable than Grant or Cook.
had a good first game but notably only played 47 minutes. Not an urgent buy. Lots of other CTR options in that 600k range who will also likely be options later on e.g. Holmes, Graham, Lomax.
are more HLF options if I want a straight swap for Cleary. Different price points and output, obviously DCE had a great first game.
